Every year at around this time, we at Today’s Family put on our Annual General Meeting. We gather everyone in the organization together and talk about how the previous year went, and what we hope to focus on for the following 365 days. You may have even been to one! And if you haven’t, well, we’d love to change that.
You – yes, you – are invited to our Annual General Meeting on September 25, from 6pm to 8:30pm. You can find more details below.
Your attendance isn’t the only thing that will make this year’s meeting a special one: we’re also mixing up the agenda a bit. Last year, a wonderful documentary about Mr. Rogers was released called Won’t You Be My Neighbor? Some of our staff saw it, and it resonated so much with them that we decided to put on a free screening for every member of the Today’s Family family! And yes, that includes you.
For those not in the know, Mr. Rogers ran a very successful and very touching television show in the United States called Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood. The program ran for 895 episodes over the course of 31 seasons on NPR and changed the way many educators approached early childhood education. Mr. Rogers believed that children could handle harsher truths and hard conversations; he believed that each child was special and deserved to be loved; and he brought this approach to every episode of his show.
Nobody embodies the mission of early childhood love and development like the late Mr. Fred Rogers. His complete and total dedication to his mission of making every child feel wanted, loved, and cared for is what we aspire to every day when we manage our Today’s Family programs. Even if you have never seen an episode of Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood, we can guarantee that Won’t You Be My Neighbor? will move you and make you believe in the power of loving children – that is, if you don’t already.
Of course, it’s not all going to be fun and movies (although that will absolutely be most of it). We are also inviting you to have a conversation about your own neighbourhoods, including what you think that we’re doing right, and things that we as an organization need to work on. Today’s Family has programs, centres, and licensed home care affiliates in most neighbourhoods in Hamilton, as well as locations across Halton, Haldimand, and Norfolk counties.
Each neighbourhood is different, especially when we move out of the big city and into more rural communities. We are incredibly fortunate to be able to serve your communities, and we want to continue to serve your communities for a long time.
If you want to join us, please RSVP by clicking the link below. Yes, it’s free, but there is limited space available, so hurry and sign up quickly!
We can’t wait to see you there!
